All that said, I am way off gauge. I'm only getting like 13 st/2 inches.

Are you knitting with the yarn slack or are you pulling it?

I've been trying to knit it slack. I had to go down to size 1s, and I'm still too big.  Undecided

Well...I fucked up for what I put for my gauge and I just remeasured. I'm at 14 sts/2inches. On the cascade fixation.

I finished a sock and I will post a picture for you when I get some batteries for my camera. Sorry I'm a space cadet.

Hey that's cool by me! That means I might be able to make it work after all.

I've been eyeing this pattern forever and just bought the yarn for it--bright pink solid and grey tweed.
And hey, if that doesn't work out, I still can make pink and grey socks, so win-win!

Sorry it took so long for me to post. I've been making tons of shower gifts. So, I've only finished the one sock. I'm pretty pleased with it. Even so, it's the second one that I have knit, so I'm going to take a short break before finishing the other one.



I'm really happy that I switched to the Cascade Fixation. I only used one skein of the orange, and about 3/4 skein of the green to make this sock, so all in all, they will have cost me 20 bucks. With the Esprit, it would be 12. Not a bad deal.

This sock is super stretchy (except for the heel) and wonderful. It is thick and soft and luscious and many friends and have touched it and cuddled it, because it literally is cuddly. I was hoping that the cotton would make it wonderful to wear in the summer, but it appears to be a pretty warm sock. Some people have asked about walking on it, and it's lovely. The yarn is absolutely lovely.



I did have to increase to 8 stitch rectangles pretty quickly. I did 3 at 6, 2 at 7 and the rest at 8 to get the right fit for me.

Wow, strangequark, that's absolutely gorgeous! I never would have thought to put those two colours together, but it looks great. I'm debating knitting these, but the yarn I ordered looks different in real life and the colours just don't go that well together (they're both gorgeous though, so I'm not too fussed, I can still make other pretty socks from it!)

I started these socks last night, after finally getting together the time (ok, and will) to dye the yarn and hang it to dry. I'm using knitpicks bare merino, and am spot on with gauge. In case you're wondering, these are my college team's colors. I can't wait for football season to start!



Oh, and please ignore the little holes in the heel- I obviously don't hold the yarn tight enough on a turn.
